In 1993, Jennifer Chandler surprised everyone when she told them that she was giving up a career in International Finance to move to Paris to learn to cook. Jennifer enrolled at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, took a crash course in French and, a year later, graduated at the top of her class with Le Grand Diplome and a Mention Tres Bien in Pastry.
After gaining invaluable work experience in kitchens in France and Washington, D.C., she moved back to her hometown of Memphis and opened Cheffie's Market and More, a prepared foods market and bakery, in 1999. Voted best new restaurant in Memphis, Cheffie's received much acclaim and many awards.
Currently living in Memphis, Tennessee, Jennifer is a full-time mom of two little girls, a free-lance magazine writer and a cookbook author.
